Good Times with Mo (also known as Good Times) is a morning radio show on Magic 89.9 and Killerbee around the Philippines, hosted by Mo Twister, Sam Oh, and Nikko Ramos every Monday to Thursday from 6 a.m. PST to 9 a.m. PST on Magic 89.9. Former DJs, Joseph Paul Pacis Javier ("Mojo Jojo"), Grace Lee, Angelika Schmeing-Cruz ("Angelicopter"), and Mia Bayuga, all left the show on 2012 for personal reasons.

History[edit]

The show has been on the air for four years starting in late 2005 when Mo returned from Los Angeles, California and was given the late night slot. He returned on February 2006 with Mojo Jojo as his co-host. Andi9 came to the picture in the late March 2006 as the replacement for Happy.

The show nearly collapsed in January 2007, when Andi left for the beach on New Year's Day in 2007. Mo originally proposed a 2-week suspension for her but later allowed her to invite a guest in Forbidden Questions. That guest was Andi's crush, Luis Alandy. Also, the iPod Luis' Christmas gift to Andi was to be auctioned to the highest bidder the Thursday after Forbidden Questions. He eventually went all the way to 40, thus saving Andi's job on Good Times With Mo, and her iPod nano. Despite this, Andi left the show the month after and Maui Taylor replaced her.

However, after an on-air dispute between Mo Twister and Maui Taylor, Maui Taylor resigned from the show on May 30, 2008. Andi9 once again became her replacement but for only a few months as she would eventually retire from the show once more on November 2008. Mo and Andi9 allegedly had a relationship and Andi's parents was against Mr. Gumatay. Grace Lee was then assigned as their third female co-host.

Since June 5, 2006, Good Times with Mo was placed in the morning slot and is one of the Top 5 morning shows in Philippine Radio (both in FM and AM)[citation needed].

Since January 22, 2012, Angelika left the show due to conflicts with co-host Grace Lee. In February 2012, Mojo resigned from good times due to health reasons though he is still part of the radio. Suzy was introduced to the show.

On March 6, 2012, it was announced that Grace Lee had resigned from the show. She was replaced by Mia Bayuga.

On November 5, 2012, Makoy Pare ("Showbiz Bro"), a regular caller of the show, was given his own segment and was introduced to the show. In his segment, Makoy Pare ("Showbiz Bro") is called by the hosts to provide "local showbiz news". He is currently the longest running co-host of the show.

In 2013, the show was under a five-month suspension and was replaced by First Thing in the Morning, hosted by Sam Oh and Gibb. Mo returned when the show was revived on December 2, 2013, with Sam and Gibb as co-hosts.

In January 2014, Mikey Bustos replaced Gibb, but Bustos himself also ended up leaving a year after; after an off-air disagreement with his co-host Mo Twister. The show was temporarily a two-(wo)man army with Mo and Sam for many months (while also having guest co-hosts in Guji Lorenzana & Mara Aquino) before Bustos was officially replaced by Nikko Ramos in late November of 2015.

On March 9, 2016, Actress/Model Jessy Mendiola was crowned the winner of 2016's Good Times Chick Republic. Chick Republic's set to return to Good Times with Mo on March 13, 2017.

In mid-2016, Senator Bam Aquino guested on Good Times with Mo. A few weeks later, he officially became a regular guest co-host once every week on the show until March 7, 2017.[1]

Controversies[edit]

"Charice" Twitter hashtag joke[edit]

On May 9, 2012, the Good Times hosts started a butt-joke on Twitter while their show was on-air. It became the trending topic in the Philippines on Twitter. Almost immediately, the hashtag spread, drawing both positive and negative reactions from the listeners. International singing sensation Charice fought back by directly sending messages to Mo Twister through Twitter.[2]

But later after the show on the same day, the management of Magic 89.9 released an official statement, suspending Mo, Suzy and Mia for two weeks without pay as a consequence.[3][4][5]
